“There are those who enter the world in such poverty that they are deprived of both the means and the motivation to improve their lot.

Unless they can be touched with the spark which ignites the spirit of individual enterprise and determination, they will only sink into apathy, degradation and despair. It is for us, who are more fortunate, to provide that spark.”

His Highness the Aga Khan

Pluralism l.jpg

“My conviction is that the strengthening of institutions supporting pluralism is as critical for the welfare and progress of human

society as are poverty alleviation and conflict prevention. In fact all three are intimately related. ... The inability of human society to recognise pluralism as a fundamental value constitutes a real handicap for its development and a serious danger for our future.”

His Highness the Aga Khan

“Poverty is a problem whose import is ignored at great peril. Perhaps, the greatest lesson of the tragedy of conflict that has recently engulfed

this region is the need to attack its true roots. These lie not in religion or in corruption, but rather in deprivation, poverty, exclusion and lack of opportunity – and therefore hope. ... We firmly believe that the disadvantaged amongst us must be able to build a sound and secure future with dignity and pride – and not merely to survive.”

His Highness the Aga Khan
